Junior Hurling North Final
Junior A panel and management following the North Final last Saturday in Dolla.
Well done to our Junior A hurlers who claimed the North title on Saturday evening last in Dolla. Following another fine performance the boys beat Borrisoleigh on a scoreline 1-22 to 3-12 with Billy Moran scoring our goal. After losing out in the last two North finals this was a great win for this group and richly deserved. Well done to all the panel and to the management team. The boys have a break now for a few weeks before the Co semi final, opposition and fixture to be confirmed.

As part of our Community Lotto, we recently donated €500 to the Children’s Ark Unit in University Hospital Limerick. This €500 donation was added to the €1000 raised in the swap shop which the Juvenile and Camogie Clubs ran during the summer. Josephine Mackey, Club Treasurer, and Deirdre Ní Loinsigh from the camogie club recently presented the cheque for €1500 to Gráinne Beattie. Well done to all involved.

Our Under 13D team were defeated by Holycross on Sunday last in the County final. Commiserations to the boys and their management group. It was a really exciting and successful season for the boys who kept their supporters enthralled right up to the final whistle each match. More great days ahead for these hurlers in the future.
The lotto has always been one of our main fundraisers and with our current club developments it is of great importance to us now that everyone continues to row in behind our lotto and we continue to increase the Nenagh Éire Óg online club lotto subscriptions. We are asking our juvenile families and supporters to play our club lotto online. It costs just €2 per week to play safely online and there are different payment plans available. If your not in, you cant win! The Jackpot is now at an attractive €7,200.
Please choose the ‘auto-renew’ option and also help family members who may not have an online presence to join. The link to join is available on the clubs web page so please sign up now and you will be included in the next draw.
The Senior team travelled to Cashel on Saturday afternoon for the last round of the group games in the Championship. Despite missing some key players and the concession of a first minute goal the girls battled hard. At half time Nenagh trailed Cashel by 6 points. With 6 minutes remaining however, Nenagh found themselves ahead by 2 points after a supreme team effort. Unfortunately they could not hold out and were beaten by 2 points at final whistle. Final score Cashel 1-18 Nenagh Eire Og 3 -9. Scorers for Nenagh were Grace O’Brien 1- 7, Maeve Coffey 1-1, Caroline Browne 1- 0, Zoey Gratton 0- 1 . This squad continues to improve and as we enter the knockout stages, hope to cause a surprise or two before the season finishes.
Nenagh will meet Annacarty in the Senior Championship Quarter Final next Saturday 16th at 3.00 o clock in Annacarty.
We played our first u15 league game in Portroe Saturday morning last.

Training continues at 7pm on Monday evening on the new AstroTurf pitch.
Under 12 training resumes Monday 6-7pm on the new AstroTurf pitch. We hope to see everyone there.
